The Ford Certified Pre-Owned Program

Relax you're covered

Peace of mind comes with the 172-point inspection, 24-hour roadside assistance, vehicle history report, powertrain limited warranty and comprehensive limited warranty coverage.

Ford Certified Pre-Owned Program


If a vehicle doesn’t meet our strict criteria, we won’t certify it. It’s that simple. Any item(s) that did not pass our 172-point inspection have been replaced or repaired. We check:

  • Vehicle History
  • Road Test
  • Exterior
  • Interior
  • Diagnostics
  • Underhood
  • Hybrid Components
  • Underbody
  • Convenience

Every Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with a 12-month, 12,000-mile comprehensive limited warranty covering more than 500 components which will be effective from the expiration of the New-Vehicle Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty or the date of the Certified Pre-Owned vehicle puprchase, whichever comes later.  PLUS you get a 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.*

We've ensured your peace of mind with our comprehensive limited warranty. The warranty covers more than 500 components, including many high-tech parts. Areas of coverage include:

  • Engine
  • Transmission
  • Rear-wheel drive
  • Front-wheel drive
  • Steering
  • Brakes
  • Front & rear suspension
  • Electrical
  • Air conditioning & heating
  • High-tech
  • Emissions
  • Ford audio


The Ford Certified Pre-Owned comprehensive limited warranty provides coverage for 12 months or 12,000 miles from the Certified Pre-Owned vehicle purchase date, whichever comes first. You can choose to extend your comprehensive limited warranty past 12 months or 12,000 miles by purchasing a Ford Extended Service Plan. Each Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle has a standard deductible of only $100, so should a repair be necessary, your costs will be minimal. Ask your sales professional for more details.


Wherever you roam, we've got you covered with our roadside assistance program. Complimentary roadside assistance is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Customers may dial (800) 241-3673.

Available services include:

  • Towing assistance of up to $100 for warranty and non-warranty problems, including accidents (excludes impound and repossession)
  • Travel expense reimbursement of up to $500, for up to 3 days lodging, meals and rental vehicle for travel expenses accrued when the breakdown occurs more than 100 miles from home
  • Destination expense assistance of up to $75 for emergency transportation to the immediate destination
  • Rental car reimbursement of up to $30 per day for up to 5 days
  • Fuel delivery if the vehicle runs out of fuel — up to 2 gallons at no charge

  • Jump starts for dead batteries
  • Lockout assistance of up to $50 to unlock vehicle doors
  • Service throughout the 50 United States and Canada


Feel confident when you get behind the wheel of your Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle with this informative, full history report. Not every vehicle can make the cut as a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle. To even be considered for certification, each Ford must be less than 6 model years old and have fewer than 80,000 miles on the odometer.

After a vehicle has been determined as eligible in terms of age and mileage, an independent third-party vehicle history report is run to identify any vehicle that does not meet our strict standards. The report is run as a part of our 172-point inspection.


Every Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with comprehensive and powertrain limited warranties, 172-point inspection and more. No one else provides that.

Let's say you find a "deal" in the paper on a used car model you've had your eye on, one with a price too good to pass up; so instead of getting a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, you buy something else. But did this vehicle include a rigorous 172-point inspection? A vehicle history? Comprehensive and powertrain limited warranties? 24-hour roadside assistance and other benefits? It doesn't take long for non-covered repairs and other expenses to eat away whatever money you saved. When it comes to long-term total cost of ownership, Ford CPO vehicles might well end up costing you less. Maybe a lot less. And it's hard to put a price on the peace of mind that comes with driving a vehicle inspected and backed by Ford.
